Who you are or who you love should never keep you from pursuing the American dream. It’s that simple. We must ensure that all LGBTQ+ Americans can receive a high quality education, work toward their dream job, access affordable healthcare, start a family, and serve in the military without discrimination.

Wayne Messam

Juneteenth is celebrated as the day Black slaves were freed from their enslavers. Since that time this nation has made many advances but yet to fully recompense for the generational harm caused by slavery and laws that have led to wealth and economic gaps. To discuss these discrepancies and to seek remedy is not being divisive. It shows a sign of maturity that would lead to a stronger America. A nation that recognizes and make amends for its sins. I believe as a nation, we can take that step and heal wounds yet to be mended.

Amy Klobuchar

We must beat back decades of systemic racism and inequality. Amy believes this begins with early-childcare and fixing our education system, addressing racism in health care such as disparities in maternal and infant mortality rates, ending housing discrimination so that everyone can afford to rent an apartment and own a home in a good neighborhood for their kids, and tackling disparities in wages and in retirement savings.

Kirsten Gillibrand

Voter suppression, partisan gerrymandering, election tampering, and foreign interference in our elections are direct threats to our democracy. Kirsten believes we need to restore the Voting Rights Act and then go even further: We should enact automatic voter registration for every 18-year-old citizen, expand access to online registration and early voting, make Election Day a federal holiday, and end partisan gerrymandering and voter roll purging. We also need to protect against the real threat of foreign interference in our elections by requiring paper ballots, reinforcing elections security, and holding accountable any country or entity that attempts to undermine our democracy.
